No. 127 Hark! The Voice of Jesus

This is our only task. If we fail here, we have truly failed. We will, as another hymn points out, present Christ with only “leaves” and no “fruit”. A sad day for us and a tragic one for those we might have persuaded with God’s help.

Verse 1:
Hark! the voice of Jesus calling,
“Who will go and work today?
Fields are white, the harvest waiting,
Who will bear the sheaves away?”
Loud and long the Master calleth,
Rich reward He offers thee;
Who will answer, gladly saying,
“Here am I, O Lord, send me.”

Verse 2:
If you cannot cross the ocean,
And the heathen land explore,
You can find the heathen nearer,
You can help them at the door,
If you cannot give your thousands,
You can give your widow’s mite,
And the least you do for Jesus,
Will be precious in His sight.

Verse 3:
If you cannot speak like angels,
If you cannot preach like Paul,
You can tell the love of Jesus,
You can say He died for all.
If you fail to rouse the wicked
With the judgment’s dread alarms,
You may lead the little children
To the Savior’s loving arms.

Verse 4:
While the souls of men are dying,
And the Master calls for you,
Let none hear you idly saying,
“There is nothing I can do.”
Gladly take the task He gives you,
Let His work your pleasure be;
Answer quickly when He calleth,
“Here am I, O Lord, send me.”

Rev. Daniel March/Rev. Morrison
